Lazada Singapore has moved its entire warehouse operations recently to SingPost Regional e-commerce Logistics Hub in Tampines Logistics Park in Singapore.
With investments by Alibaba in both companies, the move allows Lazada and SingPost to leverage on each other’s strengths to meet rising e-commerce demand in South-east Asia. Both companies will be able to serve a wider spectrum of customers in Singapore and the region. This also emphasises Lazada’s aim to work together with the wider e-commerce eco system in Singapore.
“Moving Lazada Singapore’s entire warehouse operations to the SingPost Regional e-commerce logistics Hub is the next natural step as we seek closer integration with our partners to better serve the needs of Singapore customers,” said Alexis Lanternier, CEO of Lazada Singapore.
The hub consolidates and integrates warehousing and delivery hub capabilities into one building. With an integrated, end-to-end solution housed in one building, SingPost is able to provide Lazada with improved efficiency, resulting in a faster turnaround time.
Lanternier added: “This also adequately prepares us for the Great Singapore Sale starting 6 June, and we are bringing in more brands than ever before, local and global. Customers can shop more with the confidence that their orders will be processed and delivered faster.”
Sam Ang, executive vice-president of SingPost, and CEO of Quantium Solutions International said: “Technology plays a big part in our regional e-commerce logistics hub, increasing productivity and efficiency. This collaboration sees Lazada’s e-commerce platform and SingPost’s end-to-end logistics capabilities coming together and it will result in scale and efficiencies for both of us.”
